OCL friday design team sketch challenge #13

i may have taken this week's sketch a little too literally...however, in my defense, why mess with something that is fabulous??? yep, i'm stickin' to that!'s the sketch...

Amber-OCLDT13 card...


i told you...literal! i LOVE Cosmo Cricket's 'Material Girl' stinkin' cute...

i used some vintage buttons and fabric to layer with my stamped flowers from Our Craft Lounge's 'Fabulous Florals' set...i stamped them with fired brick distress ink onto ivory card stock, cut them out and inked up all the edges of the papers with walnut distress ink...the leaves were stamped on patterned paper with the walnut ink and trimmed out...the sentiment is from Our Craft Lounge 'Say it with Flowers' stamped with the walnut ink and cut out using a spellbinders die...  

click on over to the Our Craft Lounge Blog and play along, you'll be happy you did!!!


Bloomin' Fabulous

it was wonderful playing with the new Our Craft Lounge flower stamps all week, i hope you enjoyed the 'flower frenzy' as much as i did!!!  


i played with the set 'Fabulous Florals' this time round...creating my own patterned paper using chalk inks.  The sentiment is, of course, from 'Say it with Flowers'.  Sweet and simple...just how i like em. 

Pop on over to the OCL BLog to see the card i made with more of the patterned paper i made...and, tomorrow is a new friday design team challenge!

have a 'bloomin fabulous' day!

fun with fabulous florals

it's day two of my week hosting on the Our Craft Lounge, using 'Fabulous Florals' a shabby kinda way...


 this is the matching tag, be sure to visit the OCL Blog to see the matching card!!

i wanted to show that sometimes you want to use a stamp simply for a coloring (can you believe it???!!!!)...i got great dimension from the stamped then cut out flowers...the small flower is layered on the large with a small foam square...then a pearl (colored with copic E43...see, worked a marker in there!!!) for the center...

more flower fun tomorrow!

it's my week to do the spotlight on the Our Craft Lounge Blog...i am so excited to have new stamps to play with!!! the theme is 'flower frenzy'...right up my alley!!!

i decided that i would make a tag that matches my card on the OCL site each day so you have something here and there brand spankedy new (yep, i just made that word up)...


i chose the 'pretty petals' stamp set for today and of course i had to use the fabulous floral sentiment set 'say it with flowers'...i can't stop looking at this tag...cute and simple!
